With the previous versions of R, I could go to any project file in Emacs and
open R within that file with the file images saved. I tried at the end of April
with version 2.1 and then today again with version 2.1a, and opening R within a
file - such as Advantage (one of my files) is impossible. It appears to try to
load R, then says:

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : 
	unable to load shared library
  dlcompat: dyld: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/exec/R version
mismatch for library: /usr/local/lib/libxml2.2.dylib (compatibility version of
user: 9.0.0 greater than library's version: 8.0.0)
Fatal error: unable to restore saved data in .RData

Process R exited abnormally with code 2 at Thu May 19 17:22:22 2005

Last time, I went back and re-loaded the old version to get it to run. Any ideas
what settings need redoing? Or is back to the old version for us OS X users?
